For those with a sweet tooth, this vending machine in Japan will be the cream of the crop.
Because it sells cakes – in cans. And travel content creator Maz Green can vouch for the quality.
The 31-year-old, who posts eye-catching photos and videos to Instagram and TikTok to hundreds of thousands of followers using the handle ‘Where To Find Me’, tried several of the canned cakes that the machine dispenses, including a strawberry shortcake that she told MailOnline Travel was ‘genuinely delicious’.
In an Instagram clip, Maz can be seen buying the dessert and revealing how it’s made from ‘soft whipped cream, vanilla sponge and Hokkaido strawberries’.
Maz discovered the machine in the Adores Shibuya arcade in Tokyo, explaining that the tinned cakes it offers cost between £5.30 and £6, that the quality all round was ‘good’, but that the strawberry shortcake was her favourite.

Maz, who posts to social media using the handle Where To Find Me, said that her favourite tinned cake was the strawberry shortcake (above)
She said: ‘I was pleasantly surprised – it was genuinely delicious and proves to me once again that Japan does everything well. The cream was light and fluffy and the Hokkaido strawberries were very fresh.
‘I also tried the mango passionfruit cake. This one included fluffy Hokkaido cream layered on chiffon cake and a mango passion fruit-flavoured jelly puree. The quality was good, but I definitely preferred the strawberry shortcake.’
Did she see any other wacky vending machines out there?
Maz, who is half Japanese though born and raised in London, said: ‘Japan is known for its weird and wonderful vending machines, so I saw a lot.
‘For food, I found one that only sold fresh bananas, one that had katsu sandwiches, another that oddly sold cans of fresh cream and on the wackier side, edible insects.
‘Some other interesting ones included a vending machine selling only beer, one with just CBD and another dispensing just flowers.’

And how does Maz rate Tokyo overall?
She said: ‘Some of my family live in Tokyo, so I visit at least once a year. Call me biased, but I consider Tokyo to be one of the best cities in the world. It’s overwhelmingly impressive, so fast-paced, with unique stimuli at every turn. But despite its crowdedness, there is pure calm and order to this dense city.
‘What I love most about Tokyo is how it perfectly preserves its tradition despite being one of the most modern cities in the world. For lunch, you’ll be served by a robot waiter and then half an hour later you walk down the road and you’ll be by an Edo castle from the 15th century.’
